It’s a two for one deal here at Halle’s Hobbies… I’m linking up with both Art Journal Journey and T stands for Tuesday today.
Why you say? I decided to embrace my word of the year and enjoy the meeting of two worlds instead of stressing over it. Technically they’ve met. 🙂 This is one of the things about the blogging community that I really enjoy. So much crossover and one blog leads to another and soon you’ve went down the rabbit hole but learned so much along the way.
The Winter wonderland theme this month on AJJ gave me the opportunity to play with a new supply.
It came in a box of paint from a garage sale. I wasn’t sure that I’d ever use it. Since I was using my sturdy board book heART journal, I knew it would hold up to the weight and wetness factor of the paste.
I am certainly glad I kept it. Look at the texture it provides. And the sparkle! The photo capture of the sparkle is nothing compared to the real deal. It really does look like snow glistening in the sunlight on a crisp Winter day.
I used this stencil with a palette knife to create the snowman.
I wish you could feel this page. So much texture on the background and the snow is soft. A really unexpected result for me even with the jars claim.
I hope my T stands for Tuesday friends have enjoyed my latest journal page.
In keeping with the
rules spirit of T day, I’m sharing my beverage as well as the healthy breakfast I enjoyed yesterday.
What else does the day have in store?
For starters, the transfer of important dates from one calendar to the next. Sometimes I wonder why I continue to keep a paper calendar since most everything is kept electronically now. But a hard copy is always good. When I rely on technology, that’s when it fails me.
I’m also going to tackle taking down Christmas decor, get in a little exercise and sort paperwork for taxes. I actually started our taxes yesterday. I hate waiting on this. I really like to know where we stand.
What are you doing today?
